KIRKUS REVIEW

Conversations and crackling dialogue keep action moving swiftly in a glossy story of an American girl spending her sixteenth year in England with the Hewitts, a British upper class family. Threaded through the perfectly credible happenings as Betty democratizes the Hewitts and she overcomes initial homesickness to achieve the serenity of real self-reliance, is her romance with Tony Hewitt and a passing fling with Robin, who had been the beau of Cynthia, the Hewitt's daughter. The story has more lustre than the usual teen-aged romance. Girls will enjoy it.
